Take SEPTA to the park for a special “Getting to Green” collaboration with Mural Arts

Pop-ups over the next few weeks take visitors from bus stations to parks

Want to explore parks this summer in style?

Mural Arts and SEPTA have collaborated on a bus shelter poster campaign, “Getting to Green,” which encourages public transit to get to city parks. The posters highlight bus routes along with activities and sights within the parks.

Visitors can go on upcoming pop-up events with lead artists Shira Walinsky and Laura Deutch at selected bus shelters sharing informational resources and conducting interviews about routes and parks riders frequently travel to.

Keep on reading for upcoming events and how to register.
